Sydney: Bay Books, 1979.
Insightful snippets of reviews and paragraphs from Sidney Nolan's diary. The colour plate production in this definitive monograph are excellent too. "In my Beckett drawings I wanted a mood; you know, the feelings between an Irish girl and an Irish boy standing in the rain; as James Joyce says, you have the notion that it's gently raining over all the counties of Ireland. But we have Aborigines down by the river, jinkers, hunters... all isolated, and this sense of isolation invades the houses: here a chair, there a table, and when you draw them you do not have to connect them in some well-worn compositional rhythm." Sidney Nolan, 21 April 1978.Item #776
